"All Australian Exhition"

An 'All Australian Exhibition' opens in the South East pylon. This showcase for Australia consisted of informative dioramas and displays on subjects such as farming, sport, transport, mining, banking, the Navy and the Air Force.

Visitors could enjoy the viewing platform using an orientation table, a scenic wall guide and giant binoculars.

The exhibition manager, Yvonne Rentoul, owned several white cats who resided in the roof top cattery and was another popular attraction. The exhibition also consisted of a souvenir shop and postal outlet.
